October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Central Ohio Plastic Surgery is an ardent supporter of sharing information about breast cancer treatment. Breast cancer is a common cancer type that more than one in ten women will come down with during their lifetime, and the best treatments for cancer are early detection and active treatment at the beginning stages of the disease.

Unfortunately, most breast cancers are not caught early enough, and so many treatments require a full or partial mastectomy in order to excise the cancerous tissue. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten offers hope for these cancer patients in the form of breast reconstruction surgery.

There are several different options for types of breast reconstruction surgery to fit the needs of the patient. To learn more about breast reconstruction, contact us today!
